Sunil Sharma- A Poem


Worms and Words

Seen---
meanings wriggling out of words---
the way earthworms emerge out
of  their burrows/tunnels in soil
increasing porosity
adding nutrients by their presence

Worms add nutrients
increase porosity

meanings are like the earthworms
adding values to degraded words.
